Fault & Motor Vehicle Accidents in Indiana

Indiana uses a fault-based system for auto accident claims. A person who holds the majority of blame for causing an accident can be held liable for the other party’s medical bills and other losses. This may be reduced if the other party was also partially responsible. For example:

  • Sam rear-ends Jill’s car on the freeway. Sam is mostly at fault for the collision because he failed to brake in time, but in investigating the accident it is discovered that Jill only had one working brake light. It is determined that she is 30% responsible and Sam is 70% responsible for the accident. If Jill’s claim is worth $10,000, Sam would be responsible for paying $7,000 and Jill would be responsible for the other $3,000.

Motor vehicle accident claims are most often paid by at-fault parties’ auto insurance providers, though additional coverage may be sought from a victim’s own policy or other sources, in some cases. A Northwest Indiana auto accident attorney at Theodoros & Rooth, P.C. can make sure your interests are protected through the claims process, so you do not fall prey to an undervalued, delayed, or denied claim. We know how to research traffic accidents, gather evidence of fault, and present our cases to insurance providers to pursue fair compensation.
